DESCRIPTION

Petanque is a form of boules where the players toss steel balls to a jack on a gravel terrain, the nearest to the jack scores. It is easy to play and is fun and friendly. This group is suitable for beginners and players from all levels.

Petanque has proved so popular that we now have three Groups in the summer and one in winter. All the Groups use the two pistes (playing areas) at Poplars, but not at the same time.

We use U3A equipment, though some members may like to buy their own boules.Casual wear is appropriate but please wear flat shoes . Participants can bring their own refreshments.

The game can be played with two, three or four in each team. A maximum of sixteen people can play on the two pistes at any one time.

PÉTANQUE OR BOULES?

Boules is a collective name for a wide range of games in which the objective is to throw or roll heavy balls (called boules in France, and bocce in Italy) as close as possible to a small target ball. English lawn and crown green bowls, and Pétanque are different forms of Boules.
